A complete recovery seems unlikely for the insane perpetrator of the “Mercedes Massacre,” in which eight people were killed and many more maimed for life.

Brady Hartsfield is about to embark on a new reign of terror against thousands of innocents, hell-bent on taking revenge against anyone who crossed his path—with retired police detective Bill Hodges at the very top of that long list....

CALL OF DUTY: A Black Hawk helicopter gets punched out of the Afghan sky. The covert operative's hand and briefcase it held are missing. The terror fighters responsible are ordered terminated by Central Command. United States Army Green Beret, Sergeant Joe Boxer is tasked with hunting them and killing them. There is no mention of the briefcase. Why not? Army green and patriotic as they come, Boxer follows JSOC orders. Along with his team of battle-hardened warriors, they engage in high-risk, deadly operations where the costs are extreme. He'll stop at nothing to protect his brothers and his best friend, Tommy Price. Both boys grew up together and enlisted with a desire to serve America. It wasn't until after Boxer began to question the briefcase's contents, that he's treated as an enemy of the state, and Tommy's life is at stake. FAST Former United States Army Green Beret, Joe Boxer, is part of a little known specialized tactical unit inside the DEA. He not only lost his leg in Middle Eastern combat, but also his partner at the hands of a corrupt puppet regime placed in power by soiled American interests. Boxer is now forced to lead the battle against domestic terrorism in a war he never imagined fighting on U.S. soil. This blue-collar veteran struggles with an amputee's challenge, but doesn't succumb to it as he battles his way onto DEA's elite FAST Team 5. Boxer's challenges with PTSD and addiction are only half the struggle as his country is under attack, and he comes to realize he's still very much the man he was prior to the roadside bomb that claimed his leg. But the fight isn't easy. He's up against the worst type of enemies—his own self-doubt, American politics, and a global radicalized ideology. RAPID FIRE Maybe revenge is not a dish best served cold. Despite his prosthesis, former United States Army Green Beret, Sergeant Joe Boxer has proven he belongs on DEA's elite FAST unit. Now he's headed into the fiery lands of the Middle East to hunt the terrorist responsible for his best friend's murder. Politics in the sandbox have changed drastically since Joe served as a military special forces sergeant in Afghanistan, but his mission remains the same. He's rejoining his FAST Team 5 to stop the terrorist threat against America's heartland. Boxer's sights are also set on revenge for Tommy Price. Boxer won't sacrifice the team's mission, but he won't miss a chance to kill The Butcher either. It's an all out race to destroy the threat to America, but the head of World Apocalyptic Revolution won't be so easily defeated. The Butcher's WAR also isn't above relying on it's allies back in the States to stop Boxer. END OF WATCH Joe Boxer only knows loyalty to his country. His sacrifices while serving as a sergeant in the United States Army Green Berets, and now his assignment as a federal counter narco-terrorism agent with the DEA, have left him in a struggle to remain loyal to his government. He's being played on all sides, but his loyalty to some is threatening his ability to see the big picture. He's back in the United States, but risk is greater now than when he was deployed. Boxer will have to rely on a small circle of patriots and his own skills to defeat the global terror group, WAR. In times of greatest crisis, it's not the uniform of the warrior, but the soul of the citizen who answers the call. Boxer's desperate task force of federal agents, Navy SEALs, and Savage Souls renegade bikers may not meet the bureaucratic ideal, but it sure as heck won't surrender to the terrorists or politicians.

"In End of Watch Robert Kirby seeks to honor the memories of the fallen by telling their stories. Culled primarily from news reports - standardized police reporting being a relatively recent invention - Kirby brings to light the circumstances surrounding the deaths of each of the officers who paid the ultimate price in their efforts to keep the peace. Young and old, sons and fathers, brothers and husbands, each story resonates with bitter lessons about lack of training, procedural errors, and often just the bad luck of being in the wrong place at the wrong time."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

The Torrance Police Department dates to May 23, 1921, when city trustees appointed Ben Olsen as city marshal and, shortly thereafter, hired Byron Anderson as night watchman. The efforts of these men were devoted to dealing with thieves, keeping the peace, and “declaring war on speedsters.” From such humble beginnings, the Torrance Police Department has grown into the fourth largest municipal law enforcement agency in Los Angeles County. Its position as the anchoring police force of the South Bay section of the county and its reputation as an innovator in crime fighting have been firmly established over time. Today, with a total of 242 sworn and 100 support personnel, the highly regarded Torrance Police Department serves more than 142,000 inhabitants in 21 square miles.
